The confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) tells the story of his life, from the formative experiences of his humble childhood in Geneva, through the achievement of international fame as novelist and philosopher in Paris, to his wanderings as an exile, persecuted by governments and alienated from the modern world. In trying to explain who he was and how he came to be the object of others' admiration and abuse, Rousseau analyses with unique insight the relationship between an elusive but essential inner self and the variety of social identities he was led to adopt. Confessions is Rousseau's search, through every resource of language, to convey what he despairs of putting into words: the personal quality of one's own existence." "This translation includes the preface to the Neuchatel manuscript, which provides insights into Rousseau's conception of autobiography."--Jacket
The French revolution : a history by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book that established Thomas Carlyle's reputation when first published in 1837, this spectacular historical masterpiece has since been accepted as the standard work on the subject. It combines a shrewd insight into character, a vivid realization of the picturesque, and a singular ability to bring the past to blazing life, making it a reading experience as thrilling as any novel. As John D. Rosenberg observes in his Introduction, The French Revolution is "one of the grand poems of [Carlyle's] century, yet its poetry consists in being everywhere scrupulously rooted in historical fact." This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition, complete and unabridged, is unavailable anywhere else. From the Trade Paperback edition
